A totally Christian Church
Come and see what God has done; His awesome deeds for us! Psalm 66:5
12th August 2018
The word from God on Sunday urged us all to make sure that we look to Him for guidance in our lives, for every decision and for the sense of direction. A light-hearted story brought home how easy it is to lose sight of the actual place we’re heading for, and to find ourselves arriving at a place that was not God’s purpose. Listen to the sermon on the River website if you missed it!
We find repeatedly these days that God challenges us in many ways to allow Him to make us ready for His plan. Our very real sense of His word to us at the River is that we stop the casual, complacent attitude that the Christian church has had for decades, and that we must rapidly get to the place where our usefulness to the Kingdom is maximised.
Just this week, in the second of our series “Big Search for Hidden Treasure”, we experienced a new openness and honesty about our needs, and our place in God. The group conversations helped us all to learn and we took another huge step forward in unity and maturity.
All this is evidence that, even in a “quiet” holiday week, we must expect God’s grace and mercy to work wonders in us! The Kingdom of God is being established in us, and the Glory is all His!
